This pup truly looks scared. But I do not trust squirrels, those little rodents run fast and hard and they seem to be crazy! Poor pup he was just trying to do his job! Stop by Happy Tuesday Join in the fun and let your troubles float away.
Oh how I miss the tales of Tuesdays Show and Tails. So here is a pigeon to make you smile. They have tail feathers so they count. This is always what happens when you get that perfect car wash. I am constantly cleaning bird poop off the cars. Birds just don't care.
Ha! Maxine you're too funny. I use to enjoy auto racing but one thing I don't need is political views. Pick a career and go with it. Give up your millions to go save the world from the rest of us. I am finished with the NFL, the NBA and NASCAR. MLB is getting on my nerves lately too. I admire the Cleveland Indians. Wanna know why no one took a knee? They have CHARACTER! They have RESPECT and most of all more of the players in baseball come from socialist countries and are grateful to be here, for now anyway. THe Cleveland Indians deserve a shout out for their patriotism! If you gonna support something, know what you are supporting! Otherwise it shows you lack intelligence. No matter the amount of money somebody gave you for your special "talent" don't follow the crowd! I love Shaq (O''Neill_. He was raised by a drill Sargent. He says "most times I am not political correct! But I Loved Shaq cause they use to play for the love of the game and nothing more.  I think Maxine and me would be good friends. I don't like to have too much work !
For Annie: missing her kind heart around here.
Schools are getting back into the swing of things whether in person or on line. I think everyone should spread more kindness. We know kids can be cruel and in today's world filled with so much technology, keep your kids simple. Stay away from all the technology and read together. Play a game, so many things out there to increase knowledge without all the tech junk. I recently read Tik Tok is one of those sites you need to be vigilante about. Kids are so innocent and it is easy to say your a kid when in fact you are not. On that note, let's give a huge shout out to the US Marshal's who have been finding missing children and stopping some of the human trafficking.
I think this is more dry humor. But dates and figs....they can be tasty!
Spending some time sorting photos and printing, scanning and sharing them. My dad in 1970 something. I thought he looked so sweet dozing. I sure miss my dad. He was such a wonderful person.  I was thinking of my folks today. My friend was burying her mom this morning. She passed away days before her 95th birthday. I wish I could have been there for Carole and her sisters. It is hard losing parents. But Betty is joining her heavenly phamily now as she was the baby and the last one to leave this earth.
Holy smokes was I young! 1976 at the Pueblo County Treasurer's Office. I shared a space with my pal Olga. She was very petite and very nervous.  She was a widow and later married her neighbor. They lost their spouses to leukemia and cancer and he was so broken when Olga passed away. It was a sad funeral. I loved working with her. The only work she had ever done was bartender work  but our boss was her friend and she gave her the job. Olga loved Sonic's crispy pork sandwich and on the way back from lunch someday's I would pick one up for her. We worked on the 2nd floor in a corner office with a window. We looked out onto Court Street. We went all out for CHRISTmas decorations in our tiny space. We even had a cardboard fireplace. Olga was an Avon lady so we had all the latest CHRISTmas decor.
We spent our honeymoon at Lake Tahoe. It was very beautiful. My sweetheart was so trim back then. I have the other half of this photo somewhere. We could wear each others jeans back then . Ah....youth......If only we could be so fit and trim. Sigh......
There is a short reference to His coming in the Nicene Creed. He (Jesus) shall come in glory to judge the living and the dead; and His kingdom shall have no end. An analogous statement is also in the biblical Pauline Creed. 1 Cor 15:23
I found this at pinterest and you can purchase a postcard with these words. I know it by heart, have never forgotten it. Catholic School gave me a good start in life.
A new month is here for 30 whole days. I had my post laid out but then Harrison popped over and we played superheroes in my backyard. That child has an incredible imagination. We had so much fun. I am tuckered out. I will share my exciting story tomorrow. when I will be wordless (NOT) on Wednesday! Enjoy your week everyone. I am late catching up comments but I will be there .

Squirrels are evil little buggers. I agree with you.

I love Maxine.

We won't watch any sports here either. You're making millions and telling us how oppressed you are? I don't think so.

Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday, Anne. Big hug. ♥

Squirrels are fun, but you do not want one as a pet. Trust me.

Just because you are famous does not mean your opinion should shape mine.

There's a fabulous story about how Shaq came to play at LSU. Basketball coach Dale Brown was in Germany, and ended up on an American military base where he saw a young man playing, and the guy had some good moves. Always looking for new recruits for the college team, Coach Brown went over and said, "Hello, soldier! Where are you from?" and the "soldier" said, "Oh, I'm not a soldier, sir, I'm only in 8th grade, my dad is stationed here."

Coach Brown, seeing this 8th grader was taller than he was, asked to meet his parents. He befriended the family, and personally promised Shaq's mom that Shaq would graduate from college if he came to LSU. She was afraid her boy would become one of those who bet everything on a career in sports and didn't make it, and ended up with no career and no education. It happens to so many.

Anyway, thanks for the funnies, and i hope you are having a great week!

Great post! I am sad that the sports teams are getting away from JUST SPORTS. I just wanna watch and not have to have stuff pushed down my throat. We don't watch NBA anyway and NFL is probably NOT gonna be watched either IF they even play. We watch baseball but only our team. Have a blessed day dear friend, sounds like you are staying busy. HUGS!

Great post. Our family will not be watching any NFL, NCAA College ball and so on. We have had enough of the "preaching to the choir" nonsense. I really enjoyed this post, have a great day friend.

I've given up watching sports on TV too. I like sports, but without all the politics and drama. My grandson plays baseball for his town so I can go watch him play. It's even better than the pros. You have a super day, hugs, Edna B.

I've never seen anything so funny as 'our' squirrels. Granted, they tease our dogs unmercifully, but it's cheap entertainment. :)
I couldn't agree with you more about pro athletics; them actually thinking we care what they think. Hope theirs is going to be a rude awakening. I LOVE that '76 photo -- gorgeous lady!
